Woud you please discuss the complications of soft bone after total hip replacement surgery?

Fracture. The biggest issue with soft bone (osteoporosis) is fracture during implant insertion. Therefore, i'd recommend having a hybrid hip replacement, in which the femoral component is cemented in place.
Complications. Softer bone may complicate hi[ replacement surgery by making the bone more vulnerable to fracture during placement of the prosthesis or may make it more difficult to achieve a good solid fit of the prosthesis. If the bone quality is poor bone growth onto the prosthesis may be inadequate and a well fixed prosthesis may not be achieved over time.
Fracture/loosening. If you have "soft" bone, then the implants may loosen over time. Furthermore, during the surgery, you are at a higher risk for fracture.

How can I control pain after total hip replacement surgery?

Walking. Prolonged or severe hip pain following hip placement is unusual, so be sure to discuss it with your surgeon.

Start with Acetaminophen and avoid nsaids unless your surgeon approves. Read more...
Should be okay. I recommend using an epidural for the surgery and then transition to oral medications a few hours later. I'd also suggest talking to your doctor about giving your a few different types of pain medication immediately before surgery, which helps reduce the amount of pain you experience afterward. Fortunately, hip replacements do not hurt that much - most of our patients walk the same day day. Read more...
Medication. Pain after total hip replacement is expected and will be most severe the first day or two after surgery. It can be easily managed with perioperative narcotic pain medicines.

Should having a prostate infection stop me from going ahead with a total hip replacement surgery?

Yes. Before any implant surgery, all evidence of infection should be cleared. A mild prostatitis without fevers or bacteria in the urine should clear with antibiotics and not delay surgery.

Maybe. If the infection has been treated with antibiotics and is resolving you are probably okay. If not, the surgery should be postponed until the condition has been treated. More importantly, you should be evaluated for the cause of the infection and treated appropriately by a urologist. Read more...
